Hectic days cause wrinkles and we all know how frustrating that is. The most logical solution to feel stressed out would be a holiday. But if your budget is looking more lean than abundant then you might want to consider combining work and travel. This is a great idea for students who have just got through the stress of exams but still carrying student debt. Rather than feel trapped, why not travel and pay of some off those loans while you do.
Before making up your mind when it comes to your holiday and working destination you should take into consideration some useful tips. Don’t forget that before actually getting to enjoy your holiday and start to earn some money at the same time, you’ll have some expenses to make. You need to pay your ticket, accommodation fee, food and other necessary things a girl can’t live without. So, be a smart girl and start your own personal research. Look for special student offers and choose the one that fits your needs the best. For instance, Lloyds TSB student bank accounts are available for a variety of students and offer plenty of planned overdraft possibilities, holiday discounts, easy payments via credit cards, not to mention full and secure access to your money. A total relief!
Once you’ve managed your finances overall start thinking about where you want to go and especially what you want to do. As a student, be prepared to start your work from an entry level so leave your fancy desires behind and get ready for some hard work. Choose a destination where you know that renting doesn’t cost much or look for job opportunities that offer accommodation.
Another useful tip is to convince some of your friends to come with you. Preferably boys and girls, because a mixed group will not only keep you company, but will also make you feel safe while abroad.
Make sure you pack comfortable clothes with you. Think about what kind of job you are going to look for and pack accordingly. Once you start making your own money you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of shopping sessions and depending on your destination , possibly at much cheaper prices than home.
Take advatange from your spare days. Get to know the local culture, meet interesting people and make new friends. See amazing landscapes and delight yourself with local foods and drinks. And of course, don’t forget your camera as you will definitely want to capture these glorious days!
